Abstract: Preliminary results of an analysis of CyberSleuth traffic data are reported in this document. CyberSleuth is a prototype of an adaptive agent-based vulnerability system intended for digitized tactical information systems. The analysis focuses on identifying the size of the mobile agents used in CyberSleuth and the required time for a mobile agent to travel between two networked computers. The traffic data were captured in an experiment conducted in the Tactical Internet laboratory of the U.S. Army Communications-Electronic Research, Development, and Engineering Center (CERDEC) in August 2002. The knowledge learned from studying the analyzed results could potentially lead to a better understanding of the constrained behavior of a very low bandwidth communication environment in which a potential application of mobile agents would have to operate. CyberSleuth is being refined for possible transition to CERDEC under the Technical Program Annex number CE-CI-1999-10.
